Located about 200 kilometers northwest of Inuvik, with no roads leading in, Ivvavik National Park is in the far northwest corner of the Yukon, above the Arctic Circle. You'll bounce into camp on a tundra-tire-equipped de Havilland DH-2 Beaver. Getting to the Arctic Circle has always been a challenge. In the old days, you risked losing toes or fingers on the trek here, while today, even flying, driving or sailing, it's an epic task; the epic part of the equation being the price tag.
